Academic Support & Success
Many resources are available at no additional cost to help undergraduates achieve Academic Success at Princeton. Keep in mind that it is normal and expected that you will be intellectually challenged in many aspects of your academic work, and that you will need help outside the classroom. It is best to seek this help early on, rather than waiting until you feel lost or overwhelmed. The resources below do not exclude each other: you may want to join a study group and attend review sessions. Your residential college dean or director of studies can help you decide which resources might be best for you.
